How much and when do you have to your personal injury lawyer fees?

Contingency Fees

Most personal injury attorneys work on contingency. That means you don’t pay hourly rates or expensive retainer fees for your lawyers’ services. Instead, those fees will be a percentage of your final settlement.

That’s what we mean by you don’t pay unless we win. Often, you don’t have to pay at all, instead those fees will be deducted before you collect your settlement at all.

This fee structure means many victims that wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford personal injury attorney services can now have access to the best representation available. It also creates another level of incentive for attorneys to win as they get no compensation if they lose.

The exact percentage of your settlement that goes toward these fees can vary depending on the details of your case, the attorney you hire, and whether the case is settled out of court or taken to a lawsuit.
